The Tholian Prison Mining Colony is inside a stationary asteroid located near Klaydia III (see screenshot below. Purple dot in red circled area.).
The above ground facilities are primarily to process the Ameloysite into liquid form for distribution.
Barracks have been built beneath the surface of the asteroid and are housing for the prisoners. When prisoners are first brought to the colony they are tasked with working in the mine shafts...a series of tunnels in the asteroid...gathering the Ameloysite mineral. The tunnel workers are at the bottom of the "food chain" and are fed the scraps of what was given to the upper level prisoners and are housed in the lower most level of the barracks. Above the tunnel workers are those tasked to transporting the mineral ore from the tunnels to the processing facilities on the surface. They are housed in the middle level of the barracks in four person rooms. The next level up are those that oversee the tunnel workers. They are given the run of the barracks from their level down and the tunnels and are tasked with keeping the tunnel workers in line by whatever means they need to accomplish that. They are given semi-decent meals, clothing and single rooms at the top of the middle level of the barracks. If production drops in the tunnels they are in charge of, they are "demoted" and lose their privileges. The upper level of the barracks house those assigned to the processing facilities on the surface. They get first dibs on the meals, are clothed in clothing that isn't tattered and stained and given two person rooms with doors that close, giving them some privacy. They must maintain their (almost unreasonable) quota in order to keep their position. Access to these barracks is built into the opposite side of the asteroid.
